In Search Of Elvis

Set for release in February 2007 is a new book by Charlie Connelly entitled "In Search of Elvis" (ISBN: 0316730556). The 336 pages book will be published by Brown Little Verlag. Synopsis: "Since his death in 1977 Elvis Presley has become an even greater cultural icon than when he was making records and consuming deep-fried peanut-butter-and-banana sandwiches. IN SEARCH OF ELVIS sees Charlie Connelly set off on a journey to discover what makes Elvis so significant today and how his spirit is being kept alive more than half a century after he changed popular culture for ever. Charlie's odyssey takes him to Finland to meet an academic who performs Elvis songs in long-dead languages - while wearing a kilt; to Canada to find the orthodox Jewish Elvis tribute artist, Schmelvis; to Scotland to get fitted out with the Presley tartan; and culminates in Memphis, where Charlie stays at the Heartbreak Hotel (which is at the end of Lonely Street) and records a song in Sun Studio, the very room where Elvis arguably invented rock'n'roll. Hilarious yet informative, and written with Charlie Connelly's customary wit and charm, this book will appeal to Elvis fans of all ages, plus the many travel-book aficionados who delighted in ATTENTION ALL SHIPPING."

Please note: This is NOT the excellent book "In Search of Elvis: Music, Race, Art, Religion" by Vernon Chadwick. Mr. Chadwick's book is "[a] collection of papers and artwork presented at The First International Conference on Elvis Presley......1995, at the University of Mississippi." [p. 353 Infinite Elvis: An annotated Bibliography by Mary Hancock Hinds] I wish title's could be copyrighted so we wouldn't wind up with such diverse subject matter under the same title!
